Subject: thinking about what's not supposed to require thinking Willard, A quotation that mirrors a mode of thought often modelled on Humanist [quote] As I looked around, I thought: Someone has put some thinking into how this had best be done, so that I, the presumed beneficiary of that thinking, need not think at all. But here I am, thinking anyway about the individual thoughts such thinking comprised, approving this bit, questioning that one, disapproving of another -- well, thinking about what's not supposed to require thinking, that _is_ philosophy, no?
